Zulu king calls for political tolerance

(Sapa)

Johannesburg - Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini called on leaders of political parties on Tuesday to work towards peaceful elections and to promote tolerance in KwaZulu-Natal.

"Corpses cannot vote. If people want to be elected at this year's elections, they should ensure levels of tolerance; we do not want to revisit unpleasant episodes."

Zwelithini was speaking at the official opening of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature in Pietermaritzburg.

His call comes after the killings of Inkatha Freedom Party and National Freedom Party members last month in KwaMashu.

A woman, believed to be an NFP supporter, was shot dead in February at KwaMashu Hostel, in Durban.

In the same month, the IFP Women's Brigade chairperson for Ward 40 in Durban was shot dead outside her home in KwaMashu.
